Off-spinner Deepti Sharma's decision to run out Charlotte Dean at the non-striker's end in the third One Day International against the England women's cricket team, last week has once again started the debate over the "spirit of the game".

While the England cricket community called out the Indian cricket team, Indians backed their players terming the dismissal 'within the rules.'

England's white-ball skipper Jos Buttler who has been the victim of a similar dismissal in the past, also expressed his opinion on the matter as he said that he would call the batter back, in case his teammate runs the non-striker out in a similar fashion.

"No one wants to see them in the game because they always create such a talking point when it should be about the battle between bat and ball and watching great game of cricket," he was quoted as saying.  

However, a popular cricket journalist Pete Della Penna exposed the English batter by revealing the number of times Buttler has left the crease during The Hundred tournament, early many times. In the series of tweet, Penna also revealed Buttler's mentality behind leaving the crease before delivery is completed. 

In one of his tweet, the cricket journalist claimed, "Buttler only stays in his crease when he is confident that the batsman will play big shots and that he doesn't need to run much. The thread clearly proves that Buttler stayed inside the crease when big-hitting Andre Russell was on the crease while he often walked out of his non-striker's end early when some other batsman was at the other end."

Meanwhile, Buttler is currently missing out from the Pakistan series due to injury concerns and in his absence, Moeen Ali is leading the side against the Men in Green. After the Pakistan tour, the Buttler-led side will travel to Australia for three T20 internationals before the T20 World Cup.
